1. Open F12 Developer Tools
2. Go to the Computed panel
3. Notice the search box

The placeholder in the search box is not greyed out and redundant (should only be "Filter," not "Filter properties...").

The search box does not have the same size as the other search boxes located in the DOM Explorer and Debugger.


4. Go to Debugger
5. Click the folder icon located at the top-left corner
6. Remove focus on the search box
7. Notice the search box

The placeholder is redundant (should only be "Filter," not "Type to filter") and the search box has a search icon (remove it to be consistent with other search boxes).

Please see attachment for more details.

Please fix these annoying bugs.

Thank you very much for your feedback. The team is continually working to improve the experience of Internet Explorer and value user feedback to raise issues and help measure our progress. We have looked at the issue you reported very closely and found it closely resembles similar reported issues. None of our usual resolutions (“BY DESIGN”, “DUPLICATE”, “FIXED”, etc.) exactly match this situation therefore we are marking it as “WON’T FIX” for lack of anything better but what we really mean is we’ll be dealing with it in an aggregated kind of way rather than looking at this exact incident in this exact situation. PLEASE continue to report others issues you find as these reports are super-helpful for prioritization. Also we would appreciate as much detail about the issue as you can provide (e.g., repro steps, stack calls, traces).

Best regards,
The IE Team
